Questions are bound to pop up at some point. When they do, our Ray Price Mazda staff will have the answers you need!

Introducing Turbo Performance

For 2021, Mazda has done something special with a few of its models. A specific Turbo trim option has made its way into vehicles like the 2021 Mazda3 sedan and the Mazda CX-30 crossover SUV. What will you receive with this Turbo trim?

Well, for the Mazda CX-30, you can expect a Skyactiv®-G 2.5L turbo engine that boasts 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. The raw power is impressive, but the responsiveness with which this power travels from the engine to the wheels is where the thrills can be found.

Also included is i-Activ AWD®, a system that has been routinely acclaimed for its on-road intelligence and traction, no matter the weather conditions.

Interior of the MAZDA CX-30

The interior of the Mazda CX-30 is made for comfort, style, and convenience. We all spend a lot of time in our vehicles, and Mazda makes sure it's a luxury experience.

The Mazda CX-30 seats five people and offers cloth-trimmed sport seats at the first trim level. If you prefer the sleekness and feel of leather, the higher trims offer standard leatherette-trimmed sport seats or even available leather-trimmed sports seats.

Higher-level trims also have standard heated front seats, driver's seat 2-position memory, and even a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The Mazda CX-30, like many SUVs on the market in 2021, has a standard infotainment system. The Mazda CX-30's is bigger than most, at 8.8 inches and is powered by Mazda Connect™. With this infotainment system, you'll get features like voice command, Pandora® internet radio, HD Radio™, text message audio delivery and reply, and more. You can also opt for in-vehicle navigation.

At higher-level trims, the Mazda CX-30 even has a windshield-projected full-color Active Driving Display. This display offers you important information directly on your windshield, so you don't have to look away from the road. With Traffic Sign Recognition, the display will show you the speed limit, directions, and more.

Exterior of the 2021 MAZDA CX-30

The exterior of the Mazda CX-30 is just as nice as the interior. The Kodo design was created to capture a sense of movement even when your vehicle is still. There is an S-curve along the doors that play with light and shadow and reflects the environment around you. Overall, what this means is that Mazda has created a vehicle that will capture attention and keep it.

Some of the colors offered for the Mazda CX-30 are Snowflake White Pearl Mica, Soul Red Crystal Metallic, Deep Crystal Blue Mica, and Jet Black Mica. With at least seven exterior colors, the Mazda CX-30 lets you express yourself.

While the Mazda CX-30 looks good, it also has plenty of practical features. To help you see at night, the Mazda CX-30 is equipped with signature LED headlights with an auto-on/off feature that senses the light level.

Your windshield wipers will start up on their own when it begins to rain because they are rain-sensing variable-intermittent wipers.

Are you someone who loves the feel of the wind in your hair and more natural light in your vehicle? The Mazda CX-30 has a power sliding-glass moonroof with a one-touch-open feature at higher trim levels. You and your passengers can enjoy the sky and the wind.

Safety in the 2021 MAZDA CX-30

During the 2020 model year, the Mazda CX-30 exceeded safety expectations by garnering a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It was also named a 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The 2021 Mazda CX-30 even retained its 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA and was named a 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK+ winner from IIHS. This means the Mazda CX-30 has gotten even safer in 2021 than the 2020 model. For 2021, the core of the crossover's safety features return, while some technology features are reimagined for more applicable on-road usage.

Take a look at some of the Mazda CX-30's driver-assist and safety features below:

The Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go is always something that catche

s folks' eyes on the test drive. With it, you can relax as the SUV accelerates and decelerates to ensure you're maintaining a set distance from the traffic in front of you.

Blind Spot Monitoring and the Rear Cross Traffic Alert systems are also available, both serving as an extra set of eyes while you're in the vehicle.

To help keep you, other drivers, and pedestrians safe, the Mazda CX-30 has Smart Brake Support. This system detects vehicles, pedestrians, and even bicyclists that might be in your path. If your Mazda CX-30 thinks an accident might happen, the car will warn you and then apply the brakes if needed.

If the unexpected happens and your Mazda is involved in a moderate or severe collision, your Mazda CX-30 will automatically connect you to 911 with the Mobile 911 automatic emergency notification system.

Getting to Know 2021 MAZDA CX-30 Trim Levels

Seven trims are available for the 2021 Mazda CX-30, including the turbo options we mentioned earlier.

The base trim level is the Mazda CX-30 2.5S, which is packed with features and eye-catching stylistic designs. From there, you can move to the Select trim, the Preferred trim, or the fully loaded Premium option. The last three trim options are your turbo engines.
